changing Up2date default installation directory !
I've used Redhat for awhile, vers 5.2, about 3 years ago and just started using it again at work, vers 7.3. Installed it and did the SSL update and CAN download packages through up2date - no problem.
My problem is they default to the /var directory and there doesn't seem to be a way for me to change that as I'm going through the screens and selecting channels/packages, etc. I don't have a lot of space on /var so I'd prefer for the packages to get loaded on /home or /usr.
Is there a way to tell up2date to download and install them elsewhere? I'm assuming it's defaulting to /var because my system's tmp directory is there. So I guess really what I need to do is change where the system /tmp directory resides perhaps?
Any help is appreciated. ...All my books are out of date, I guess I'll have to go to B&N tonight.
